HistoryEdit

Koryak, the son of Aquaman and the Inuit woman Kako, was raised by his Inuit mother in her remote village in Northern Canada without ever knowing the identity of his father or the truth about his Atlantean heritage. As a teenager, Koryak was introduced to Aquaman. Aquaman was ill prepared for the boy's temper and attitude, which, in many ways, mirrored Aquaman's own personality. Resentful of Aquaman's close relationship with Tempest, the angry, rebellious Koryak eventually took up residence in Atlantis, Aquaman's undersea kingdom. Against his father's express wishes, Koryak led a great migration of Atlanteans out of the capital city Poseidonis and into the tunnels of its sister city Tritonis. There, he unwittingly released the cruel Kordax and embroiled Atlantis in a great war with the God Triton. As a result of his misguided actions, Koryak was banished from Atlantis. He returned in shame to his mother's village where he still resides.

During Infinite Crisis, Eclipso manipulated the Spectre, to destroy all magic in the Universe. In an uncontrollabe rage, he destroyed Atlantis killing Koryak and its population.

Narwhal

Later, a young memory-less Atlantean called Narwhal is manipulated by the Deep Church to kill the Dweller-of-the-Depths, so Urlok their god can resurrect. After the funeral of the Dweller-of-the-Depths, Mera accidentally finds his killer and and thinks he looks like someone. Back at the palace she discovers that Koryak's body was stolen, from this she believes that Narwhal was actually Koryak.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Powers

  • Unique Physiology: Koryak is a Human/Atlantean hybrid, and as such has developed several physical traits common to many Atlanteans.
  • Amphibian: Koryak can breathe and function underwater just as easily as he can on land. He can remain underwater indefinitely without any negative side effects.
  • Superhuman Durability: Koryak's skin and muscle tissue is extra dense, enabling him to function in the deepest depths of the ocean.

Abilities

  • Diving: Koryak is skilled in the art of diving, though he has never received any professional training.
  • Swimming: Swimming comes naturally to Koryak, and he can swim with Olympic-level speed and agility.
